Since Everyone Has One, Here is My Opinion on Miley Cyrus

Everyone seems to be going on and on about Miley Cyrus. Not only are they railing on her for her performance at the VMA's, they are calling her newest phase trashy. Yes, I agree that her performance was disgraceful and 'trashy', but Miley is just one of many young celebrities that are lost.

Miley started out as an innocent young actress playing the popular Hannah Montana, a show that many young people enjoyed. She quickly grew and moved past Hannah Montana, something she was outgrowing. Now she is screaming for attention by wearing very little clothing, singing songs that are filled with questionable lyrics, and dancing like a stripper. More than anything, I am sad for her. She is someone that God had big plans for, but she wasn't raised to know Him. She's lost. Her actions reflect someone who is confused and instead of trying to help, we criticize and judge, neither of which is our place. Miley still has a chance to know Jesus but no one is helping her. No one is taking the time to sit down and talk to her or explain to her what she is doing. The more we say hurtful things to her, the farther she will run.

Miley, as most of us know, was named Destiny Hope by her parents. Her nickname though was 'Smiley' because that is what she did most. Miley is a beautiful girl with a beautiful smile. She has a personality that draws people to her and a talent that God has given her. But her actions are making her ugly and repulsive.

Miley, I'm sorry for what you are going through. I'm sorry everyone is criticizing and belittling you for your choices. I wish that I had a chance to sit down and talk with you so that I could explain to you what knowing Christ is like. I wish I could tell you how amazing you are in God's sight but that your actions hurt Him. I wish that I could hug you and tell you that you are loved SO much by your Creator. I wish more than anything that I could lead you to Christ. You would be a changed person; a person that people could look up to instead of being a person that everyone is disgusted by.
I'm not sure what hurt you have gone through and I won't judge you until I walk a mile in your shoes. Even though I may not agree with your choices, I love you because God loves you. I pray for your salvation.
